We’re pleased to announce lower pricing of our XR-3 Modular Signal Level Meter.  The new pricing goes into effect immediately.  Now that we’ve had the XR-3 in production for about 8 months, we’ve able to refine the production process and work with our component suppliers to offer the best pricing we can.  The price for the XR-3 with either satellite meter module is now only slightly more than the Super Buddy 29 and the XR-3 offers all of the advantages mentioned below.

XR-3 with satellite meter module benefits over our popular Super Buddy 29 satellite meter:
1) Compatible with DVB-S2 signals
2) While not waterproof, the XR-3 (as long as the module is locked in place when outdoors) is more weatherproof than the Super Buddy, but it should still be shielded with a plastic bag or something by the user if the user is forced to work in a steady rain or downpour.
3) Although the initial purchase price of the XR-3 is higher than the Super Buddy’s, the XR-3 is a better value over the life of the instrument than the Super Buddy is.
4) The long-term life of the XR-3’s battery is almost double of the long-term life of the Super Buddy’s battery.  And it’s easy for the user to replace the XR-3’s battery, so there would be less units being sent back to the factory for service.  And the run time per charge of the XR-3’s Li-Ion battery is about double of the Super Buddy’s Ni-MH battery, so there is a performance benefit, too.
5) With regards to repairs, the XR-3’s modular design has benefits.  If there is an issue with a module, only the tuner module would need to be sent back for service.  So, it would be easy to troubleshoot by taking a known good working module and temporarily swapping it with the faulty module to see if that resolves the issue.  If it does, then the faulty module could be sent back to the factory for service (the module has a smaller box size, lighter weight so cheaper shipping) and your head office could maybe have a few modules on hand to be loaners since the modules themselves are cheaper than an entire new meter.
6) A user can purchase multiple modules for various applications (i.e. VSAT, DBS, Cable TV, VHF/UHF Over-The-Air) and swap them on the jobsite if needed.
7) None of us have a crystal ball for the future of technology, but the modular design provides some flexibility with future technology.  As technology changes, it would only be necessary to purchase a new module instead of an entirely new meter.  
8) The boot-up, satellite signal locking, software updates, Limit Scans, and Proof of Performance Scans are quicker on the XR-3.
9) The display on the XR-3 is a higher resolution color display, which is much easier to see than the Super Buddy’s lower resolution monochrome display.
10) The window protecting the display on the XR-3 is hard and thus will protect the LCD glass better than the Super Buddy’s film window covering the Super Buddy’s display, so this will result in less broken LCD’s (which means less units being sent to the factory to have broken LCDs replaced).
11) The XR-3’s color display performs better than the Super Buddy’s monochrome display across broad temperature ranges (in extreme heat and cold).
12) Glow in the dark keypad on instrument’s front panel.
